We have 1400 people on our voter checklist.  We also have one Accuvote
tabulator that is used at our elections.  I love it, my workers like it,
and the BCA really loves it!!!!  It makes counting a breeze and is truly


It does cost to program the ballots for each election (Town Meeting
ballot cost us $1,000 to program) but it is worth it.  There is also an
annual maintenance agreement with LHS that costs about $175.

Subject: Vote Tabulator Love It or Hate It


Hi All


I am looking for feedback from any one who uses the vote tabulator
machine. I am going before my Select Board on Thursday night to discuss
it one last time and want to hear from anyone that loves or hates their
machine. Hardwick has a voter checklist of approximately 2300. I really
appreciate any information you can pass along.


Thank you, 

Alberta Miller

Town Clerk, Hardwick
